I've been taking 20mg's of bioidentical progesterone for about a week now & I'm not sure if I o'd on cd15 or 17 as I missed a bunch of temps due to being sick and though they are under the coverline 36.4 is higher then my normal pre o temps of 36.0-36.2... My plan was to start testing at 10dpo as I need to know that I am/I'm not pregnant before I take a break from the progesterone to get af... Only I'm not sure if tomorrow is 10dpo or only 8dpo... Would you start testing already or wait till you know for sure your at 10dpo? Here is my chart if you want to take a peek...

Personally, I would wait to test until you are sure you are 10dpo.  I assume there's no harm in taking the progesterone a few extra days, but if you stop it too early and you are pregnant, it could cause problems.  So I would wait. 

 

Good luck to you!

Yeah I guess... I just really want to know as the insane tiredness that I think is caused by the progesterone is killing me and honestly if I don't get a bfp I'm really looking forward to taking a break from it for the 15 days or so days so that I can get something done and not feel like a zombie!

So I caved & tested yesterday at 9dpo which was neg... But then I tested again this morning as I'm supposed to be going off the progesterone in the next 2 days if I'm not pg... & I think I might have got a very faint bfp! It's really hard to know what to think as it's so faint but my husband agrees that it is without a doubt pink and it's gotten easier to see since the time limit which I know your not supposed to count, but I have never had a frer test get darker/pinker after the limit or even days later unless it was a bfp... So I'm really unsure if I should get excited or not... Here is the tests if you want to take a look and let me know what you think.... The line didn't upload as dark as it looked on my computer but I think you can still see it... & Here is the bfp I got @ 10dpo w/ my last baby as a reference

I definitely see something! My FRER at 11 dpo definitely got darker with a bit more time.

I saw something if I tilted my screen. I got VERY faint BFP lines this pregnancy too though. If it showed up within the 10 minutes then I say it's legit. Test again tomorrow!

Here is the update till tomorrow... I went to a walk-in clinic & they did a urine test that was neg... I was hoping it would be pos but not surprised that it wasn't as I had only taken the Frer test a few hours before and when I got a bfp on a frer @ 10dpo w/ ds2 the urine test came back inconclusive @ the clinic the same day so they sent me for a blood test... They gave me a form for a blood test tonight as well, so I'll be getting that done tomorrow...So I guess it could be a neg, but I still have hope for a bfp :) Anyways I picked up a 2-pack of Frer and a First Response Digital and plan to test in the morning w/ the frer and if that if it's a darker line then I'll test with the digital... Soo wired wanting to know if this is for real! redface.gif

Well they are still pretty faint... But I got 2 more frer positives & a digital pos! (though I don't totally trust that one as I've read about a lot of false pos & have never used it myself...) Anyways here is the pics! Last 2 are the new ones! joy.gifbiggrinbounce.gif
